Make a handmade fabric corsage: free sewing pattern

A fabric corsage to sew - accessories to sew - free sewing pattern - Craft - allaboutyou.com

You will need

● pinking shears or sewing scissors
● selection of fabrics
● decorative buttons
● needle and thread
● brooch fastening or safety pin

1 Use pinking shears or sewing scissors to cut out lots of different-sized circles and basic leaf shapes from your scraps of material. Try to create a good mix of patterns, textures and colours.

2 Layer up the discs, largest on the bottom, until you have a thick stack of fabric.

3 Place a button on the top and secure it firmly in place by stitching through all the layers, using a double cotton thread.

4 Sew the brooch fastening to the back.

5 Repeat step two with your leaf shapes, then stitch in a straight line all the way down the middle of the stack.

6 Attach a safety pin or brooch fastening to each leaf or sew three together with one large clip on the back. Pin to jackets or wear in your hair.

Tip: You can buy specialist clips or clasps from bead or craft shops, or online – try www.hobbycraft.co.uk
